Brewers Towner International is an Open Call exhibition that will take place at Towner Eastbourne in 2022, featuring both British and International artists.
The Brewers Towner Award of £10,000, sponsored by Brewers Decorator Centres, will be awarded to one of the exhibiting artists.
The exhibition will feature artists living and making locally in Sussex, Kent and Hampshire, as well as those working and exhibiting nationally and internationally.
This year Towner invites submissions that explore the theme of SANCTUARY; which can be interpreted as a physical space, a place offering safe haven, asylum or refuge; it can be understood as an area or environment where endangered species are protected, diverse ecosystems flourish and wildlife is preserved; it can also suggest a space of the imagination, a meditative mental space of solace and respite from the exterior world.
Selected artists will be chosen by an esteemed panel of guest judges including Sepake Angiama (Director, Iniva), Elizabeth Price (Turner Prize winnning artist), and Noelle Collins (Exhibitions & Offsite Curator, Towner) will select artists for the exhibition.
Towner is inviting artists to submit works for consideration to Brewers Towner International through an online Open Call process which is now open.
Submissions from professional artists working in all media, including — but not restricted to — painting, drawing, print, sculpture, sound, performance, photography, film and installation are welcome. There is no cost to enter, and all exhibiting artists will receive a fee of £350. All works submitted must be available for exhibition from October 2022 through to the end of January 2023.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm GMT on Monday 31 January 2022.
